O no Demons, Jesus will you help.

He Wants It All!







Once there was this very wealthy young man. He lived in a great, elaborate
house with dozens of rooms. Each room was more comfortable and more beautiful than the one
before it. There were paintings and sculptures. Crystal chandeliers, golden, ornate
railings on the stairs. More beauty that most have ever seen. One day he decided to invite
the Lord to come and stay with him. When the Lord arrived, this young man offered him the
very best room in the house. The room was upstairs and at the end of the hall. "This
room is yours, Jesus! Stay as long as you like and you can do whatever you want to in this
room, remember Jesus, it's all yours." "Thank you" the Lord replied, and
with that the man shut the door and went about his daily business.


That evening after he had retired for the night there came a loud knocking
at the front door. The young man pulled on his robe and made his way downstairs. When he
opened the door he found that the devil had sent three of his demons to attack the man. He
quickly tried to close the door but one of the demons kept sticking his foot in. Sometime
later, after a great struggle, he managed to slam the door shut and returned to his room
totally exhausted. "Can you believe that!" the man thought, "Jesus is
upstairs in my very best room sleeping while I am down here battling demons. Oh, well,
maybe he just didn't hear." He slept fitfully that night. The next day things went
along as normal and, being as tired as he was, the young man retired early that evening.


Along about midnight, there came such a terrible ruckus at the front door
that the young man was sure that whatever it was would tear the door down. He stumbled
down the stairs once again and opened the door to find that there were dozens of demons
now trying to get into his beautiful home. For more than three hours he fought and
struggled against the demons from hell and finally overpowered them enough to shut the
door against their attack. All energy seemed to fail him. "I really don't understand
this at all. Why won't the Lord come to my rescue? Why does he allow me to fight all by
myself? I feel so alone." Troubled he found his way to the sofa and fell exhausted
into a restless sleep.


The next morning he decided to inquire of the Lord about the happenings of
the last two evenings. Quietly he made his way to the elegant bedroom where he had left
Jesus. "Jesus," he called as he tapped at the door. "Lord, I don't
understand what is happening. For the last two nights I have had to fight the demons away
from my door while you laid up here sleeping. Don't you care about me? Did I not give you
the very best room in house?" He could see the tears building in Jesus' eyes but
continued on, "I just don't understand. I really thought that once I invited you in
to live with me that you would take care of me and I gave you the best room in my house
and everything. What more can I do?"


"My precious child," Jesus spoke so softly. " I do love and
care for you. I protect all that you have released into my care. But when you invited me
to come here and stay, you brought me to this lovely room and you shut the door to the
rest of your house. I am Lord of this room but I am not Master of this house. I have
protected this room and no demon may enter here."


"Oh, Lord, please forgive me. Take all of my house - it is yours - I
am so sorry that I never offered you all to begin with. I want you to have control of
everything." With this he flung open the bedroom door and knelt at Jesus' feet.
"Please forgive me Lord for being so selfish." Jesus smiled and told him that He
had already forgiven him and that He would take care of things from now on. That night as
the young man prepared for bed he thought to himself, " I wonder if those demons will
return. I am so tired of fighting them each and every night." But he knew that Jesus
said that he would take care of things from now on.


Along about midnight the banging on the door was frightening. The young
man slipped out of his room in time to see Jesus going down the stairs. He watched in awe
as Jesus swung open the door, no need to be afraid. Satan stood at
the door this time demanding to be let in. "What do you want, Satan?" the Lord
asked. The devil bowed low in the presence of the Lord, "So sorry, I seem to have
gotten the wrong address." And with that, he and the demons all ran away.


There is a moral to this tale. Jesus wants all of you, not just a part. He
will give you victory over all that you give Him. How much of your heart have you given to
the Lord? Are you keeping a portion of it away from Him? Perhaps the attacks are coming
more and more each day. Why not let the Lord fight the battles for you? He is always
victorious.


"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the
one who is in you [Jesus] is greater than the one who is in the world [Satan]" 1 John
4:4.
